Encryption Policy, Decrypted: Key Policy Issues for Lawmakers

This panel will examine the on-going major debate over strong encryption of computer data, and whether law enforcement should have special access, a so-called “backdoor,” to read encrypted data.  With repeated calls for legislation in this area, lawmakers need to know the basics of the technology at issue to understand the policy questions at stake.  This panel will offer background on the encryption debate and then identify the less-discussed but critical questions that could affect encryption policy, such as international law enforcement agreements, ongoing vulnerability testing, and accountability systems.

Our panelists, whose backgrounds include national security, government, industry, and civil society, offer a unique and well-rounded perspective on this important debate.  Panelists include:
